Blue Distinction Centers and Centers of Medical Excellence

When you're choosing a hospital, performance counts. Many specialty care providers in the Anthem network have earned one (or more) of the quality awards below. Each award is only presented to facilities that pass a rigorous review of their processes and performance. Over and over, they've proven their expertise at delivering quality care. That could mean fewer complications, fewer readmissions and higher survival rates. Look for these awards as you weigh your health care options.

For SISC members, bariatric surgery must be performed at a hospital that has received either the Blue Distinction Centers or Blue Distinction Centers+ designation for benefits to be available.  Hip and knee replacement or certain spine surgeries must be performed at a hospital that has received a Blue Distinction Centers+ designation only. See "More Information" below about this benefit or contact the customer service number on your ID card.
